XONG 1.2 release for WIN/MAC/LINUX.... Feedback?
« on: November 24, 2009, 02:56:01 PM »
Announcing the semi-roguelike action puzzler XONG 1.2, now in release for Windows, Mac OSX Intel, and GNU/Linux.

See http://dto.github.com/notebook/xong.html for details, here's a screenshot:



Download the game from http://dto.github.com/notebook/xong.html

The graphics and music have a deliberately retro feel, so please keep this in mind when judging the visuals. That being said, I'd like people to play and give their most honest feeback and criticism about the gameplay. Is this fun? Would certain rule changes increase fun and reduce frustration? I'd like feedback on how well the game's elements balance together. My goal is to have a challenging, fast puzzle game that may have difficult moments, but manages the frustration level carefully so that players don't give up. Try to play for awhile and see what situations come up. Also, bug reports are welcome.

In addition to posting feedback and questions here, you can visit us on irc.freenode.net channel #lispgames!

Welcome to Roguetemple and thanks for dropping by---do stick around!   8)

The game looks fairly interesting as a hybrid approach.
